Mikhail Prokhorov seems to be channeling his inner Thornton Melon.
Like Rodney Dangerfield’s gazillionaire playboy in the film “Back to School,” the Nets’ billionaire owner is hitting campus. Prokhorov announced in a video released by the team via Twitter on Friday night that he will be accompanying the club for its training camp at Duke University.
“Greetings Nets players, coaches and front office,” Prokhorov says to begin the 27-second clip. “I have heard you have got a field trip planned for a week of training and team building. I thought I’ll join you there to say a personal hello and find out how we get ready to start the season.”
